Journeys for Hope: Relief Riders International

Overview

We know, we know, India is not Africa, but we love the work our friends at Relief Riders International do so we are sharing their great work here!

Several years we were introduced to Alexander Souri, the founder of Relief Riders. A mutual colleague of ours introduced us because she saw that we had shared beliefs in adventure travel for a purpose. As we have learned more and more about their mission and service work through Alexander, we have become big fans of the Relief Rider trips.

Relief Riders International was founded with the mission: to combine an extraordinary adventure travel experience with the opportunity for travelers to deliver life-changing medical care, educational supplies, and livestock to below poverty level villagers in Rajasthan, India. Alexander will tell you, "I know from my own travels to Rajasthan that for every gift I have given I have received gifts that have changed my life."

Each trip is about 14 days and combines riding the incredible Marwai horses and service work in some of the most remote hospitals, schools and villages.
